A reminder that River Road Extension and Coal Creek are CLOSED for snowmobiling by the private landowner – there is no access up Coal Creek, up the Matheson, or past Paige’s draw up to Martin / Leech. Active hauling is in progress and the riding areas are currently stripped of snow from logging activities. The FSA has a zero-tolerance policy and fully supports the efforts of the landowner and conservation officers to enforce closures. IT IS ILLEGAL IN BC TO SNOWMOBILE ON A PLOWED ROAD! Those riding in closed areas, not stopping at the kiosk, or threatening FSA staff and volunteers may face fines and permanent loss of trail / facility access. Please help us spread the word and report information on anyone you see riding in these areas to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can provide education.
